As one of Europe`s premier experts for Gourmet Wine Tours we always have to broaden our portfolio. When offering a new destination it is very important to familiarize ourselves before. In February 2020 I visited Moldova and WineTours Moldova organized a cool, beautiful and well-structured event/wine tasting tour for me. During 3 days they proved that they will be the right partner for my upcoming tours to Moldova, starting in 2021. Many times during they tour, I could proof, that the Moldovian wineries produce wines of international standards and have a fantastic gastronomy. During my visit, we tasted over 100 wines from 20 wineries, paired with traditional and international dishes.
I was impressed by everything that happened in Moldova, including the wonderful warm weather in February. But I would like to be more precise ... not only the wines were astonishingly good, also the design of the labels, the complex aromas and the velvety taste was amazing. So for my further Gourmet Wine Tours to Moldova with Wine Lovers from all over the world, WineTours Moldova definitely will be our partner.

I searched and searched for some wine tour companies in Moldova & am very happy with this one.
I knew the names of a few wineries people suggested and I asked the company to come up with a 2 day tour that covered some of the northern wineries on the first day and southern on the 2nd day.

On Day 1 we did 2 wineries and the monastery at Orheiul Vechi which was great & worth it. Cricova and Chateau Vartley were great. where they took us to lunch in a cave was fantastic, Epoca de Piatra.

On Day 2 we went south to Mileștii Mici, Asconi Winery, and Castle Mimi. Castle Mimi was pretty, but our least favorite, it felt somewhat 'cold' in personality.

The underground tunnels for Cricova and Milestii Mici are enormous and if it is your first time visiting a winery, you will be spoiled b/c I have never encountered that before & likely won't again!

The tour guide that was with us, Laurentia, was fantastic & her English was great. Our driver didn't speak English but he was still engaging somehow. They picked us up at our accommodation each morning and she was very knowledgeable about Moldova in general.

I highly recommend this tour company to help you arrange your visits to different wineries.

As a group of travelers, we had a good experience with Wine Tours. Veronica promptly answered to our email requests and ensured the smooth running of our trip. We also requested the transportation service for our own planned one week tour. We were daily notified per email about the driver timetable.
I would recommend this service for tourists that travel by themselves (without a Romanian speaking person or a local buddy).

The language wasnt very nice while we were organising our event's needs such as city tour and the pickups. You do not talk with an attitude towards your customer:)
Service was considered good but one of the guide did not listen to our director's suggestion regarding the walking tour. He told her we would need to speed up to catch up with our guests (second group) but she did not listen to him. Most importantly, I specifically indicated that the two groups have to be in the wine tasting venue at the same time but they couldnt manage.

Dear Suren, I trust this message finds you well, and I appreciate your candid feedback regarding your recent experience with our services. Firstly, let me express our sincere gratitude for choosing us to be a part of your event. We are pleased to hear that you found our overall service to be satisfactory. However, we are genuinely sorry to learn about the challenges you faced during the organization of your event. Your feedback is invaluable to us as it highlights areas where we can improve, and we take your concerns very seriously. We would like to address the issue you raised concerning the walking tour and the coordination of the two groups. We understand the importance of a seamless experience and regret any inconvenience caused by the guide not adhering to your director's suggestion. Additionally, we regret the timing misalignment at the wine-tasting venue, which was further influenced by the path of the group and our commitment to delivering a high-quality city tour. It's worth mentioning that prior to your group's arrival, a detailed confirmation for the program, including timings and addresses, was sent to your email. We are committed to delivering our services in a timely manner, and we can confirm that all services were provided as agreed upon earlier. However, we acknowledge the challenges posed by the last-minute changes and requests that were communicated through various channels, including email, SMS, and WhatsApp. We made every effort to accommodate these changes promptly and provide the necessary support. I would like to also address the specific issue related to the airport transfers. It was indeed a regrettable incident, and we want to emphasize that it was not a mistake on our part. Two of your guests were left behind because one of your colleagues informed the driver that all participants were in the car and the ride could commence. Consequently, we had to organize another private pickup at our own expense to rectify the situation. To ensure a more seamless experience going forward, we recommend designating a single contact person (decision-maker) and using a reliable communication channel for any last-minute changes or requests. This will enable us to respond more effectively and provide the necessary support. Once again, thank you for bringing these matters to our attention. We genuinely appreciate your feedback, and we assure you that we are taking steps to address the issues raised. If there is anything more you would like to discuss or if you have further concerns, please feel free to contact us directly. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back in the future and provide you with the outstanding experience we strive to deliver. Warm regards,

I recommend to make a reservation with WineTours Moldova as they offer convenient orders of different tours online. We visit Cricova - amazing landmark in Moldova but the tour was of average quality due to boring guide who just recited the text and tried to sell us a bottle of wine.
We were slightly disappointed from this guiding style and recommend to Cricova to improve the guiding services.

A great opportunity to discover some of the major Moldovan wineries as well as taste wines from smaller producers. Since the team takes care of everything, you can lay back and enjoy :-) Competent, well organised, fluent in several languages!
A little bit more stress on food and culture could complete the tourist offer. The food was very good but never explained. We could taste the culinary treasures of Moldova, but didn't understand them. On the way between wineries, some architectonical or natural highlights of the country could be visited too.

Our Tour guide, Nicolina, met us at the Chisinau station with driver, Vitalie, in a comfortable, warm car. We were welcomed with friendliness and warmth and started our tour. We had a super super time and asked millions of questions. Nicolina was knowledgeable and full of interesting facts and stories. It was good to see Moldova through her eyes as a local. She had studied in Western Europe and had an international outlook. We love the 'pride in local produce and stories' outlook of Wine Tours Moldova and appreciate all that was done for us to make us comfortable and to give us a top class trip! We would highly recommend Wine Tours Moldova!

Took two full day tours with WineTours Moldova and had a great time. Requested a specific tour (focused heavily on wine tasting and touring) and they provided a great experience. Highly recommended (as are the wines of Moldova!).
